What were once murmurs about a late entry by a candidate into the Republican presidential primary or a potential convention fight for the nomination have become a topic of open speculation in the GOP, reflecting concerns about the party’s existing crop of competitors.

Odds remain heavily stacked against the party arriving at its convention without a nominee, but the remaining candidates face lingering doubts about their strength versus President Barack Obama ... and that's fueling discussion that some kind of “knight in shining armor” could, or should, ride in to “save” the GOP at the last moment.

Mitt Romney in particular is facing fresh doubts about his ability to take the reins in the Republican primary after failing to win several recent caucus contests. Now Romney appears to be at risk of losing next Tuesday’s primary in his native Michigan to Rick Santorum.

Romney has failed to seal the deal in a series of key primaries and caucuses over the month and a half, struggling to win over skeptical conservatives. Santorum, in turn, has rallied those conservatives to score victories which stymied Romney’s momentum, but did nothing to quell doubts about the former Pennsylvania senator’s ability to square off against Obama in November.

The speculation -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who’s endorsed Romney, acknowledged Wednesday that he’s still facing pressure to wage his own campaign -- may well reach a fever pitch after Super Tuesday on March 6.

Would it even be possible for a dark horse candidate to win the nomination without any primary victories? It sure would make for an entertaining convention.

Chris Christie is way too liberal for today's GOP.  Among other things he recently appointed a Muslim as a judge and an openly gay man as a judge.  He also dismissed concerns that the Muslim might impose Sharia law as pure bullshit.

I don't like Chris Christie because he's an ass and a bully, and I don't think we should have elected officials who act like asses with their citizens, even when those citizens may deserve it.  It's unprofessional, and would result in serious reprimand or firing in any regular professional position.  But got to give him big props for his defense of the Muslim he appointed.

Right now he's a clean blank slate to most conservatives, same as Rick Perry was before him.  They've put him in the role of their next great hope.  But once they see that he's a muslim/gay loving governor of a North-Eastern state he's pretty much toast.

Not to mention the guy looks like he could have a heart attack at any given moment. He may be a good person to attach as a VP, but I don't think he has a chance at the presidency.
